Impact Cut 5 Super Hi-Viz Gloves
Glove Safety Features
Abrasion resistant is part of the mechanical risk tests in ANSI 105 and EN 388 for work glove performance requirements. The EN 388 is measured on a 1-4 scale (4 being the most abrasion resistant) and ANSI 105 is measured on a 0-6 scale (6 being the most abrasion resistant). The abrasion resistance test is done by rotating a flat surface against the glove palm material until it is punctured.
Select 212 Performance gloves are made with antimicrobial materials. Antimicrobial gloves help prevent bacteria buildup, unpleasant smells, and rashes.
Cut Resistance is the most talked about attribute when it comes to hand safety. Gloves are measured on a 1-5 scale (5 being most cut resistant) by EN 388:2016 standards and a A1-A9 scale (9 being the most cut resistant) by ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 standards. The EN 388 rating may also include the results of the TDM-100 cut test, which are measured on an A-I scale (I being the most cut resistant).

Dexterity is the tactile sensitivity (or flexibility) of a glove. In general, the thinner the glove, the more dexterity it has and the easier it will be to handle small objects. The test we use to determine 212 Performance glove dexterity is EN 420:2009. This test measures the smallest stainless steel pin that can be picked up. The smaller the object, the higher the rating on a 1-5 scale.
Impact resistance was recently added to the EN 388:2016 glove safety rating and measures back-of-hand knuckle impact protection. There are three potential ratings that would be included on the EN 388 safety icon: P for passed impact protection test, F for failed impact protection test, and X for not test for impact protection. There currently are no glove impact protection safety standards for ANSI/ISEA.
The 212 IMPACT CUT 5 offers high-quality impact protection without sacrificing dexterity. This flexible, formfitting glove is made for tough jobs where contact with materials, machinery is inevitable, and the chance of a cut-related injury is high.
